    I have a question??!! In my travels to work every day, I go through lots of countryside that has lots of ponds in/on it. I have noticed, in the last couple of years, that on these ponds, a lot of little white flowers grow, above a mat of light green stuff. It's really beautiful. The flower stalks look to be about 4-6 inches above the pond, and are present sping through mid summer. I have never stopped to look more closely. Could these be utrics?

    Would it be ethical to take a sample? ...whatever it is, is real common around here. and pretty. April.

    probably, but not necissarily. if it has traps, it is.

    i dont see why you can't take as much as you want as long as and only if you have permission from the landowner.

    Well, I think they're mostly done blooming now...and a lot of their ponds have dried up. So, next Spring I will be sure and get pictures. April

    I doubt whether it was a Utricularia. As far as I am aware, there is only one white flowering Utricularia species that occurs in the US and that is U. olivacea. I was of the understanding that it had quite tiny flowers on very short scapes, certainly not resembling those that you have described.

    Here's a link to an example of this species growing in the wild.

    Thanks for the info, Seandew. If I see any more of them blooming this year, I will stop and take pictures. The height estimate was made from a car doing anywhere from 40-55 MPH, though. I've never stopped to look at them more closely. April

    Could well be something like Water Crowfoot (aquatic buttercups, Ranunculus). I don't know how common they are in the US, but common in Europe.
